The clever sourcing of diverse vineyard clones from around the Valley results in an exceptionally appealing well-balanced, layered Chardonnay.
Double trouble when you show up with this magnum of premium Napa Valley Cabernet. The 2006 vintage marked Nils' 25th Anniversary with Saddleback, and he decided to design a special bottle of Cabernet for the occasion!
Uniquely Saddleback, this Oakville-grown Pinot Grigio is distinctive and a rare find indeed. Planted on the property in 1995, the fruit from these treasured vines produces a delightful white wine full of character, thanks to a careful harvest at the peak of ripeness and neutral-oak barrel aging.
A straight-up stunner! "Classic Nils Venge Cabernet Sauvignon ... 92 Pts" -- Robert Parker Jr, Wine Advocate
93 PTS -- SF International Wine Competition (Gold Medal)
Only 79 cases made. Nils Venge's Reserve Cabernet is an iconic must-have from Napa Valley. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, barreled 24 months in 100% French oak, and held in bottle for another 24 to rest before release. This is a rare and rewarding vintage, complementary to dining and friendly to the palate with smooth, balanced dark berry flavors. Phenomenal finish.
Currently in wide release! Rare Napa Valley-grown Sangiovese is a light to medium-bodied stunner and a local favorite, growing right around the corner from Saddleback's Oakville estate. Aromas of cherries, pomegranate on the palate balanced by black olive and espresso, and a seriously creamy finish. Complements all varieties of picnic fare, lush Italian red sauces and warming temps.
*A Posse wine club selection for March* Returning after last vintage's sell out, our Pinot Blanc is a unique and treasured Valley find. Sought after for its bright, floral aromas and flavors of stone fruit and silky honey, this medium-bodied white wine is a great pick for pairing with brunch and food in general.
Another Winery Exclusive! Summertime requires a Go-Plan: at least a few bottles of rosé on hand at any given moment. Strikingly fragrant, this blush, dry rosé will tickle your palate with bright, enticing flavors to pair excellently with picnics and pontoon boats.
Our flagship wine, this vintage features a fruit-forward nose, a bold structure and a dense, full body. Lots to excite the palate here. Very typical of the 2013 vintage from Napa Valley, this wine is settling into its "drink now" phase, and will be quite palatable for years to come.
